close About Me
- Me, Myself, and I
Pieter van Rhyn...
was born and raised in a little dot on the map of South Africa.
might still tell you that he's 27, if he doesn't get the count or do the math quite right.
stands 2 meters tall and weighs 110 kilos, and isn't keen on telling people how much that is in "American."
is amused by people who are surprised at his lack of education, and ready to show up those who say they aren't.
knows Life is the best teacher, even though she kills all of her students.
divides his life and his job between Vegas and L.A., and somehow thinks it to be a good idea.
works at an outfit called Carnal Cinema for a steady check, but works for himself for a bigger payday.
describes his position as "on top, from behind, up against a wall, and anything else they want."
is disappointed that he can't get that on a business card.
puts his sham of a "marriage" in the category of "the less said, the better."
isn't who you think he is.
- You, Yourself, and You
So why am I reading this?
This is a roleplay profile. None of it is real.
What should I bring to the party?
Your good faith and your in-character drama. If you enjoy writing stories, don't blush or blanch at writing gritty and socially unacceptable stories, and have a character who doesn't always try to be nice, then we should talk.
What should I avoid?
Leave your bad faith and your out-of-character drama at home. If you tip-toe around those socially unacceptable details, aren't steady, waste your time criticizing things that no one is forcing you to do, cannot (at the very least) be honest about your hypocrisy, or don't always try to be nice, then we shouldn't talk.
This may be neither here nor there, but I have been forced by circumstances to conclude that there is no practical difference between actually being a flake or a hypocrite, and simply acting like one.
What do you want?
Intelligent, adult-oriented play with fun, well-written characters. Someone who knows the "difference" between erotica and smut, but can write either at the right time, and in the context of a story. Pieter is a modern character with a fantasy backstory, but one who presents a realistic front to the world. I can come from either direction, or both at once in the right context.
I play well with and against others. Things that don't involve "expected" pairings are a plus, but ideas don't come to be called clichéd because they are always bad. The story is in what happens after two people meet, and not as much in the who, where, or how.
This is acting. I am an INTJ/ISTJ pretending to be an ESFP. Do us both a favor, and don't confuse me with my character.
If you've read Variel's website, then you probably understand my interest in creating scenes with other supernaturals. The scenes can focus on keeping up the masquerade in a modern world, or they can take a more historical and multi-faceted approach. The thing to remember: discovery is far sexier than omniscence.
I read profiles. If I can't read yours, then we're going to have a harder time getting started. It's not difficult to make a profile, and it's even easier to make it so that we can all see it.
Where can I learn more?
Well, there's the website: http://tarnishedhalo.moonfruit.com
You might also try some of the tablets in the Slates module. I write a fair bit about writing, and some of it might actually interest you. Start here and scroll south.
It should probably go without saying, but I don't mean for anything about this characterization to offend anyone's particular belief system. It's make-believe.
What you get out of this should equal what you put into it. As it is with all things, your mileage may vary.
Questions asked and answered via e-mail (preferred) and Instant Message. In fact, the easiest way to find out if I am here is to send an Instant Message, as AIM sometimes reports that I am absent when I am not.
